Yes I feel That The Schools in West Michigan should follow suit to what Republic/Michigamme Schools have done 4 days a week with an added hour to the four days is fine.

1. it helps cut costs down of running the schools as a per day annum especially the electric bills and it may lower taxes

First of all, I find it interesting that 2/3 of the comments so far are from people who don't even reside in Mich. And to comment...I think it would be one more step in dumbing down our students. Studys show that other countries who educate their students longer are passing American students academically. Schools can cut costs in other ways...have you seen how much some superintendents get paid??? Schools supplying computers for students???...come on.
